A 69 year old male with ferropenic anemia and generalized malaise was referred to our hospital in order to investigate any underlying malignant disease. Faecal occult bloodtesting was negative. Lab tests and a panendoscopy were also negative. A full body CT scan showed a large mass in the left atrium and a MRI was performed to further determine the mass (Fig. 1). An ecocardiogram confirmed the presence of a large mobile mass of 83mm×30mm which was anchored to the ceiling of the left atrium. The tumor prolapsed in to the left ventricle during dyastole, generating a dynamic mitral stenosis (VID1). Surgery was planned in order to remove the mass. Preoperative coronary angiography showed a three vessel coronary disease. A triple bypass surgery and a resection of the atrial mass was performed (Figs. 2 and 3). The pathology analysis confirmed the diagnosis of myxoma. The patient underwent an uneventful postoperative stay and was discharged 5 days after the procedure.

Myxomas represent nearly half of the benign cardiac tumors, they occur sporadically and the majority occur solitarily. They have predilection to be localized in the left atrium. Our case was a papillary myxoma which are fragile and prone to fragmentation and embolization.
